make me cry? No other song has made me do that. Never in my 34 years of age.

I know a guy who broke down and cried during a Heavens Door encore at Oakland in 1993. He'd had a premonition that his sister had died. And his cell phone started ringing in the coliseum parking lot after the show. A brother called him to confirm this as a fact...

You, kind sir, are a punk. To my knowledge, punks do not cry. Finding out that they do gives me some small hope for this world.

Very cool to know.

Never surrender.

I've already informed my wife that I want Brokedown played at my funeral. Then I want the Eyes>Estimated from Colgate 77 blasted. Great way to ensure that the folks I care most about will leave smiling.

As for wedding tunes as mentioned above, we had one of the only Dead songs my wife actually likes: TLEO. Even my folks approved of that one.

for a funeral, I would add Black Muddy River from 12/31/86.
The Eyes>Estimated from the 77 Colgate show is a grate call

I cried my eyes out when Phil did Eyes of the World on 10-5-07 in Chicago. They were tears of joy, regret, sorrow, and lots of other emotions. A friend had just committed suicide. It was my first "Dead" of any kind since Jerry. I was separated from my wife (since back together). I was with several old friends from way back when I first traveled in the 80's. I was having a great time (sober) and something in that moment and hearing that song just opened up the floodgates. I'm a tough old grizzled guy and I rarely cry, so it says alot about the power of music.

Cause' Jerry and the band can literally touch a person with the music.
